What is a Manual Handling Risk Assessment?
The aim of a manual handling risk assessment is to ensure that your employees understand the importance of correct lifting techniques and the health risks associated with manual handling activities in the workplace.
In fact, manual handling tasks are one of the top three causes of injuries at work yet it can be easily avoided if the right assessment has been carried out beforehand, and staff are appropriately trained (see our manual handling online training here).
